Thought I’d try something fun, perhaps through the week — I’m going to post an original song, along with a cover, and let y’all argue about which is the better of the two.
I was inspired by listening to, believe it or not, Alice Cooper’s new release (!), Detroit Stories, which opens with a cover of Lou Reed’s “Rock and Roll”. (Also believe it or not, Cooper’s album ain’t half bad, as he does a good job of rocking on while not taking himself too seriously.)
How it started:
How it’s going:
Yeah, I know I’m cheating a little, since Reed originally recorded the song with The Velvet Underground, but work with me here. The cool thing about the comparison I’m making in this post is that Steve Hunter plays guitar on both the Reed and the Cooper versions.
So, what’s your take?
